If we get extra support in addition to the funds required to get Lyfcycle Customs off the ground, we'll continue to widen the product range, innovate with new sustainable materials and adapt our technology to bring you and your customers the very best in eco-conscious clothing.


Starting your own eco clothing brand has never been easier...

At the heart Lyfcycle®, is the desire not only to deliver great value products at affordable prices, but to deliver sustainable fashion that doesn't cost the earth.

Our story starts with two people, Adriana & Gianni, a brother-sister duo. With previous experience in garment sourcing and history in running clothing brands, we have a lot of experiences to draw from. Through years of witnessing the harmful effects of the fashion industry on our precious environment and limited resources, we decided to put our knowledge to good use. We're here to enable positive impact and drive a much-needed change in both shopping and manufacturing behaviours.

We have also committed to donate 5% of all Lyfcycle® profits to social and environmental causes through our foundation. We support educational programmes for underprivileged children, workers rights in the textile industry and several environmental initiatives. 

Having established Lyfcycle® as a supplier of sustainable clothing to high street retailers and household brands, throughout our journey, we've encountered too many small brands that want to make clothing more sustainably but that don't fit into the mould of mass-scale manufacturing. So that's where Lyfcycle Customs™ comes in.  

We're working to offer individuals, start ups and small brands the means to create sustainably made clothing without the need to hold huge stocks or part with loads of cash. With our range of carefully crafted t-shirts, hoodies and sweats made from a blend of recycled and organic materials, in a variety of colours, you'll be off to a solid start. 

Add to that the ability to get your weird and wonderful custom prints and embroideries onto our blanks, and you have yourself an eco-conscious clothing brand in no time.

The final Lyfcycle® touch? Our garment traceability that will elevate your sustainable brand to the next level. Every garment made and supplier by us is compatible with the Lyfcycle® app. You and your customers can just scan the unique QR code within the product labelling to see where your products were made and what went into them. Without transparency, true sustainability cannot be achieved.

HOW IT WORKS...

1) You choose from our range of sustainably made blanks - whether it be a tshirt, hoodie, sweatshirt or a combo of all of these. You can buy our products individually - whether that's because you want to work on a made-to-order basis or you're an individual just looking to add some sustainable basics to your wardrobe. But you'll also find product bundles in a range of sizes and product mixes that enable you to offer a wide clothing range 1595527548_screen_shot_2020-07-23_at_18.56.04.pngto your prospective customers.

2) Get your goods delivered blank and you're free to embellish however you choose. Or stay with us and go the whole hog... we can help you make our blanks your own. Add an embroidered logo, a custom print and custom labelling - it's as good as ordering bespoke garments but without the big investment and long lead times.

3You're good to go. Your custom Lyfcycle-made clothing products are on their way to you. Get shouting about your brand because it's gonna be awesome. We'll help you do that too - at the end of the day, we want to use our platform to elevate and promote all friends of Lyfcycle and encourage sustainable fashion. Oh and did we tell you your new products are fully traceable?

In case you're still unsure..What will the money raised be used for? Asking our community for help on this one isn't something we've done lightly. But we figured, if we're going to do this, then we want to do it properly. That means being able to offer you a wide range of products, in a plethora of colours and sizes, with endless options for customisation. The money raised through this campaign will enable us to do that from the very start. We'll also be looking to buy the machinery that enables us to customise your products in-house. Making the process smoother and quicker for you and bringing down the old carbon footprint of your purchases...happy you, happy planet :)

What will my reward look like if I choose 'Support The Cause' or 'Total Lyfcycle Fan'? You'll have a choice! A variety of designs in different colours - available in both mens and women sizes. Here are just a few of the options available:

It really is as simple as that. We've been hard at work developing all of this from a belief that there has to be a better way. A better way for budding entrepreneurs to launch their own brands without damaging the planet and their bank accounts. So now it's over to you guys. Support us and help us deliver Lyfcycle Customs™ to the eco-conscious fashion world. Any questions at all, we're happy to chat.

Thank you!

- Adriana & Gianni
